This series of events was created in 2000 Jesse and the Gothmag team. The idea is that any creative idea is possible, regardless of resources so let’s aim for the highest in quality, good taste, subtlty, irony etc and then look on the bright side and label it The Greatness Of The Magnificence.

Here’s a quote from a song by The Moonflowers called The World’s Most Famous Unknown People:

“The Worlds most famous Unknown People
In these progressively backward times
Carelessly precious with dreams that are real
More brilliantly crap than anything else”.. just about sums it up
